Day 1 TRANSFER IN TO CUSCO:

Flight to Cusco, upon arrival passengers will be transferred to their hotel in order to rest and acclimatize to the high altitude (10,496 ft.). Due to our experience in high altitude travel, we do not include lunch because most travelers prefer not to eat in order to acclimatize. Afternoon walking city tour of Cusco. This soft hike will take you through the streets of Cusco, visiting the main attraction of this fascinating city that mixes Inca and Colonial architecture making it a unique place. You will be met by your guide in your hotel in Cusco. From there we will start our city tour walking to the Temple of Koricancha, considered the most important Inca Temple of Cusco, nowadays occupied by a monastery of the Dominican order. From here we will walk to Cusco’s Main Square, were we will visit both the Cathedral built over the ruins of the Sunturwasi temple and the ͞Iglesia de la Compañia͟. Then we will move on to San Blas, known as the artisan’s neighbourhood and explore its narrow streets to get to its Church and see its wood carved pulpit. Visit the houses of famous artisans such as the Mendivil family, who are considered the cradle of most handcrafters in Cusco city. From this area you have a wonderful view of the whole city. We will end this walking city tour in your hotel or in a nice restaurant. At night passengers will receive a briefing about their upcoming adventure. (Meals not included)
